    Yes, the Devil was carried off by the Angel of Death, whom I guess has the power to make it stick . . . .

    Right.

    She said something like "I'll take you both."

    The Name Game scene may be the best thing I've seen on tv for the last year or so.

    Last night's episode was just OK for me. I didn't really like the way they handled the characters and their lives after Briarcliff.

    Kit apparently had a polygamous relationship with Alma and Grace as they raised two children together. Grace became very obsessed with her abduction experience, and Alma unexpectedly went psycho and murdered her (with an ax, ironically) and got locked up at Briarcliff, only to die there after a short time.

    Meanwhile, Lana Banana's fame as an author transformed her into this self-absorbed airhead, but she was still bothered by her conscience for embellishing and changing certain details in her book.

    Poor old Sister Jude. It looked as if she completely lost her mind. I wonder if Frances Conroy's inmate character was a real manifestation of the Angel of Death, or was Judy just imagining it in her head? She lost track of time, hoping the erstwhile Monsignor would get her out of the asylum. I really hope they write a positive ending for her. Can't believe next week is already the season finale! :(

    The last three weeks, every episode has seemed like the finale.

    Oh look.

    You got more blood out of that stone.

    How amazing.

    ^ Excellent! I wonder if Dylan McDermott and Frances Conroy would do guest appearances. For that matter, we might even see Season 2 cast members like Naomi Grossman (I really liked her as Pepper), Lizzie Brocheré, Clea Duvall, et al.

    Awwwwww...... :( I was hoping they'd do Salem. Sarah Paulson would look adorable in 17th century garb. I can picture Evan Peters as a minister fighting the witchy inquisition.

    :eek::eek::eek:

    WOW. I liked that ending. I really, really did. Junior was a monster. What realistic choice did she have? I wasn't expecting it, so I liked it. Lana you are one tough cookie, though--plastic surgeon or no--she looked too good to be 82 years old.

    What a cautionary tale to demonstrate that safe legal abortion is a far better option. :guffaw: Think how many good folks Johnny wouldn't have killed if Lana hadn't wimped out on the abortion. I'm sure some folks will be appalled that she killed her boy, but what choice did she have? He's a serial killer. He isn't going to stop. If she sacrifices herself he just goes on killing.

    I found Jude's end to be touching; Kit taking her in was something unexpected as well, but that was the essence of Kit. Hopefully the aliens are keeping him safe and well. His kids knew there was no reason to mourn. Kit's fine.

    She didn't wimp out on the abortion, Lana Banana stuck that coathanger right up inside, but the demon inside the nun used angel magic to save the baby because it's hilarious from her point of view.

    Oh that's right. She went for it the first time with the hanger. She didn't the second, though. She told the doctor to stop. A moment of guilt....talk about a mistake coming back to haunt you. I loved Sarah Paulson in this episode. In fact, I loved her all through the season. I'm happy that she and Evan Peters are signed for season 3. And, of course, Jessica.

    I really loved this season. More than last season. There were so many things going on this year compared to the first season which dragged at times. No real let up this season. I think that all the character in the finale got perfect endings. Lana is hardcore. She got moxie.

    Last night's season finale was a bittersweet ending to the phenomenal Season 2, which I liked much better than Season 1.

    I was both happy and sad for Sister Jude, bless her heart. Kit was kind enough to take her into his own home despite of what she did to him and Grace at Briarcliff. I thought when Lana and her news crew found her alive at the asylum, Lana was the one who was going to rescue her. Rest in peace, Judy.

    Sarah Paulson really gave it her best performance last night and throughout the season. Her character was perhaps the most well written and developed of all, and she was (as well as Sister Jude) the central figure in the story. Was she really 82 years old when she met Johnny? I thought she'd be younger than that; I figured maybe in her late 60s or early 70s. The ending was a tad predictable in that I could see her trying to manipulate Johnny into lowering his gun, only to finish him off.

    So, how long do we have to wait until the next season?

    Johnny stated he was 48 years old. The story began in 1964--Johnny was born in 1965 like me. Being 48 years old sneaks up on you, let me tell you. :cardie: Dr. Threadson mentioned that Lana was 33 when he was holding her captive as were his other victims. If she was 34 when Johnny was born then she'd be turning 82 in 2013.

    Lana shooting Johnny may have been predicatable, but the manner in which she did it wasn't. No angsting about it. No tears. No flinching. She was resigned. No "but this is my baaaaby and I regret it." She didn't. She did what she had to do.

    Lana was complex. Ambitious, lost her way a bit but retained her humanity without apologizing for being ambitious. I like that.
